Birthday Day Out






Today my prayers were answered and Calum took me shopping to Edinburgh to get my Birthday present and also take me to lunch.  We headed up pretty early via the park and ride in order to miss the chaos sure to hit the Capital with the 6 Nations Rugby.  Luckily we managed to jump on a nice quiet train in to Waverley before there were too many rugby fans milling about. We started out for the West End, planning to start the shop excursion in Urban Outfitters and make our way towards Topshop when we were ready to leave.  Around half way down Princes Street we got hungry and headed up to George Street on a little detour for something to eat.  We went into around four different places before finally getting a table in Browns, i was quite glad really, not only were we starving but we had pretty much made our way all the way back to the West End.  The drinks were welcomed, i went for a Bloody Mary, spicy, but not too spicy, and the 'driver' had a homemade lemonade.  
Although the place was busy, the food came really quickly and was piping hot and delicious.  Calum had a Crab and Prawn Linguini in a pesto and lime sauce and i had a Lobster sandwich on sour dough bread with the lobster is some heavenly herby mayo! We were both super impressed and polished off the plates agreeing we'd probably go back for more when next in town. 







Dress- Urban Outfitters, Shoes- Clarks Scarf- Lochcarron Of Scotland
I got this dress for my Birthday from Mum and Dad, and i bought the scarf from work as a present to myself.  It's lambswool and cashmere and my GOD is it cosy! I've worn it every day since i bought it.  You can see lots more of the Lochcarron collection in tons of the cashmere shops and Scottish shops up and down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and also in Jenners and up at the Castle! If you do pop into Jenners though, take a peek at the coat display, i helped to build that! :) 



We headed back home just as the Scotland Vs Italy game was starting, so Calum caught the first half  on his phone whilst we waited for our train...  Rank result. Not impressed in the slightest.  So we've just had a huge indian to soften the blow of another wooden spoon.  We both had a great day and we're looking forward to a good kip before heading to Church tomorrow to make some of the final arrangements for our Wedding. 

Have a great weekend.
